Military Training Device Unearthed By Crew Working On Baseball Field

The discovery was made Wednesday morning in the left field area of Pat Thomas Stadium by a crew with the Leesburg’s Public Works Department.

A team from Patrick Air Force Base removed the device, which was X-rayed and deemed not explosive.

Local 6 News helicopter Sky 6 showed two men wearing camouflage and a robotic device in the outfield of the baseball diamond.

Any guesses as to what it was?

Do you want to know the terrifying truth, or do you want to see me sock a few dingers?

We're a suspect device if we do what we're told
But a suspect device can score an own goal
I'm a suspect device the Army can't defuse
You're a suspect device they know they can't refuse
We're gonna blow up in their face

Well, y'know, one of the classic early UFO films was shot at a minor league ballpark by the club's GM ... http://www.nicap.org/mariana.htm

Great, great song. The original 45 is even more incindiary (no pun intended) than the LP opener.

Naked Raygun's cover version doesn't exactly suck, either.
